The Eight Stages of Life
Our eight stages help you manage your job, career or business by describing the major focus of each stage. Knowing what to expect can help you identify opportunities and avoid pitfalls.
Stage One: Exploring
In this first stage, you are busy exploring many ideas about life and work. You usually start this stage in childhood and it accelerates during adolescence. Often this stage is marked by experimenting with life styles, values and methods of self expression. You are trying to define who you are and who you are not. Key activities include discovering what you are naturally great at, finding (and discarding) role models and learning what you love and hate.
All these help you identify interesting work (or ideally the ingredients of the work you love).
